The purpose of climatic adjusters is to allow for climate changes and keep the play surface from warping. A shuffleboard surface should have a slight concave to it so the pucks do not fall off the sides of the board. Because the play surface is not perfectly flat, it is necessary to occasionally adjust the board.

Soft (Canadian) maple playing fields are acceptable because of advances in finishing techniques. Polymer finishes are stronger than lacquers of the past, providing a smooth finish with added protection from dents dings and scuffs. The sections below will explain more about shuffleboard surface materials.Learn more about shuffleboard table thickness.
The material used on your shuffleboard table surface is much more important than just smooth and shiny playing fields. Having a surface that is made of durable wood is important because shuffleboard tables are often damaged by dropped pucks and high impact experienced during the game.
Soft maples offer more economical but they are still very reliable when finished with polymer. Poplar, North American Maple Wood, White Maple, Russian Birch, and Canadian Soft Maple are other materials used for shuffleboard tables. Maple, birch, oak, and mahogany are the best materials. Above all, you want a solid hardwood playing surface because they are stronger and more immune to dents, dings, and other accidental damage.
The finish of your shuffleboard table is one of the most important aspects. Polymer (expoxy) finishes are poured on top of the table to prevent air bubbles from forming on the table. Spray on finishes are inferior to finishes that have been poured. A poured polymer finish is important because the puck will damage and crack the finish if there are any imperfections in the surface.
Polymer finishes are also better than simple lacquers and shellacs that were the standard 50 years ago when shuffleboard first became popular. These traditional surfaces wear out quicker (in 3-4 years) and simply to do not offer the same durability as refined polymer resins.
The outer structure of your shuffleboard table plays just as important of a role as the actual surface of the playfield. This is what holds the entire table together. Professional shuffleboard tables are made with solid hardwood outer cabinets while cheaper tables are made with MDF particle board.
Shuffleboard Climatic Adjusters allow you to maintain the right curvature in the playing field of your shuffleboard table.
